    I have been working at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Lots of research going on, there's always an opportunity to attend talks and poster sessions to learn something new. Most labs seem friendly. Depending on the building you're in the facilities are nice.

    Cons

    Parking is a nightmare, employee appreciation varies by department, lab personnel always seem to be forgotten in the scheme of things.

    I worked at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great co-workers; working with high school athletes is enjoyable

    Cons

    6 day weeks during school year wears you down; management can't figure out how to schedule so all get a 2 day weekend; Sat-Sun, or Sun-Mon would work.

    Advice to Management

    Your turnover rate ought to tell you something; salary is only part of it; 6 day weeks wears down good employees

    I worked at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Excellent team to work with, everyone was always willing to help others and work together.

    Cons

    Management of raises and performance reviews was lackluster, the person giving the raises did not actually see what the team did on a day to day basis. They should leave the raises and performance reviews to the direct manager of that employee (either lead programmer or senior), not the project manager.
